I disagree with Charlotte being an "average" city. I've been to many cities and in terms of overall niceness, Charlotte is the best I've ever seen. I might be a little opinionated, but still. Is it because some of you guys have lived here for so long, or am I so accustomed to seeing poo in Knoxville that I don't know what I'm talking about?

Nah your pretty much right. WV is a hard place to live in if you are not from there. No culture activities except a few and the range of entertainment is limited.

Are you talking about vegetation?

The green in Charlotte doesn't last long enough. It gets burned out in the summer and stays grey all winter.

....this coming from a guy whose last two duty stations were in Germany and Washington State. Returning to Germany from Iraq will give you green overload. So much green its nauseating. And Washington is the Evergreen State.

Your opinion is based off personal experiences. Charlotte is a great atmosphere for business. But entertainment and culture? Mmmmm not so much.

Yes there are things to do. But once you come to the realization of small things - for example, a single day ticket to Carowinds costs more than a single day ticket to the Magic Kingdom- you start thinking "really, Charlotte? Really?"

It just depends how you personally look at things.

You need to visit Tamarac in WV. They have a cafeteria.

Much like college, where you live and what you get out of it is usually all up to the individual.

I have been here since 1990 living in CLT and Davidson.

Davidson was a one stoplight town and you had to drive to cornelius to buy cigarettes or mooresville to watch a movie.

Downtown charlotte shutdown at 5:00 on Fridays and nobody lived there

The people who hate on Charlotte are typically:

1. Jealous Triangle residents trying to pretend Raleigh has 10% of Charlotte's swag, and

2. Brooklyn Bully
